    After spending 100 in office as usa president,and no turn around has occurred in us economy, does it mean Obama has failed? Is he the cause of GM and Wall Street downturns? Obama made his speeches today at the white house and...again, EU leaders slam us economy strategies,whats your opinion?

      Time is only one factor, I am more concerned with his treasury appointments.

    Obama's Inauguration was on January 20th, just like many Presidents before him.

    That means he's been in office for - 2 months 5 days. smile

    I think that I reserve any opinion whether I'm pleased or not with his Presidential method for next January, give it a full year to see what he's done, how he's fixed both his mistakes and the mistakes of others before/around him, and figure out what I think of him at that point.

    Even if he had been in for 100 days - that is not a fair chance. He is, of course going to fail because he is merely doing what all the politicians are doing - panicking, pretending he knows what he is doing and printing more money. Doomed to fail sad

    I prefer to give him the benefit of the doubt. Only time will tell what the outcome will be and is way too soon to see any sort of picture rather than get critical and doubt in him today.

      I can tell you without time, in fact I've been telling this way before you guys elected him. This is too big for a man to stop, even if you assume this man is smart and honest and understands what is going on. Like trying to stop the train with bare hands...

    It's definitely a job for Superman. And I can't help but suspect the former administration set it up this way and are sitting back in glee. F- them.
    I believe Obama is doing the best job he can with what he has to work with. He's basically charting new territory on many fronts.
    Way too soon to declare him a "failure" (as Fatboy Limbaugh wants to do). The litmus test will come a few years from now (and he has said this himself) -- American re-elects him.
    In the meantime, there are signs -- inklings -- of progress/recovery in the financial and housing markets. These aren't happening spontaneously, they're effects instead of causes.

      As my sister says, seems like we go through a cycle where we have Republican status quo (or a substitute of whatever by those who would abuse it) for long stretches, until the point it gets bad, then progressives have to come in and clean up the house after them--in an endless cycle.

      Obama has just started.  Of course the job is enormous.  I find it ridiculous that people would be criticizing him and (even just a little bit believing) that anything is going to happen over night.  Rush is the failure--an enormously wealthy, drug addled failure, but still a failure on fronts that count.  Obama will surprise everybody and may turn out to be one of the best presidents we have ever had.

    MM, I won't argue, time will tell smile

    And just for the record - America re-elected Bush so this test does not seem to be too acurate lol

    RK, This is sort of communist approach - stop the train throwing live people in front of it. Oh, I forgot, we live in a socialist country now... wink

    It's a huge job. If an individual person was in this much of a mess, you wouldn't sort out the muddle in 100 days.  It makes me laugh that people seem to expect a new government to wave a magic wand - life doesn't work like that.

    Good heavens, its only been 100 days.  But still, I think when obama leaves office, the change will have come.  Bad change.
